My first experience there was a shocking assortment of costume selections that come down to say something for every one was a definite likelihood... Busy, busy, busy, is all I could say with last minute shoppers young and old all searching for their costume and less than a week was the spooky day. A friendly staff willing to help where... More

Lots of costumes and accessories. Just about everything you need to change your persona. Mostly your adults work here - some good, some not so accommodating.

Last time I was there was Halloween so of course they had a wide selection. I have also been there in summer to get a costume for a 70's party / Woodstock party. We had no problem finding all kinds of stuff. It appeared to me they were just as fully stocked as at Halloween.

Costume Castle has probably one of the largest selections of full costumes and costume accessories I've ever seen. I was looking for a specific piece and was able to find it there. What I really appreciate it that they are open year-round; not just at Halloween. So whatever fun thing I have to do that requires a little fantasy inspiration... More

This is a jokers paradise! They have everything from phony ice cubes with flies in them to any other glorious and humorous concoction… when it comes to costumes – there are hundreds and in every size! The biggest problem that I have with this place is that it is very, very expensive! I will stick to buying my stuff online... More

What's so great about Costume Castle is that you may go in with an idea of what you want or need, but then you'll get in there and get creative. They have all you need and more... TIP: Get started early for Halloween. They have a ton of stuff in September.

The only place in the area where you can find a year round costume of any kind. My kids, husband and I really enjoy it. Awesome!!

Everytime my son and I go to SoCal, we stop at the Costume Castle. On our most recent visit we spent close to 2 hours in the store yet it seemed only like minutes. From the armored knights guarding front door and the themed decor it is truly an experience. So much so that we look as forward to visiting... More
